Bill Gates and Jerry Seinfeld’s Second Microsoft Commercial: Longer and Weirder

The version shown below is the long one — it runs for four minutes and thirty seconds, and features a teensy bit of technology and tech terms (for a brief moment, Gates talks about object-oriented design) and another “Bill, give me a sign!” ending.

I see where they might be headed, and I have to say, Bill Gates is kinda likable, but I sure hope they improve their products as well. That more than anything will help them win people back.
